Dean’s Conference, Tuesday, May 18: At 2:00-2:30 pm Edith Jenkins-Weinrub & I will be speaking about the Disaster Preparedness Presentations with Podcasts that her NURS 235 class are creating. See the April 12th update for more details on the project.
This will be followed by a two-part hands-on workshop that I will be conducting in the HEDCO Technology Support Center starting at 2:45 pm:

I am looking forward to hearing the other presentations and to an all-around great day!
When playing your PowerPoint presentations, do you use the Presenter Tools? If not, you might want to try it next time.
The Presenter Tools allow you to see the time (current or elapsed), view your slide notes, and preview the next slide. It also allows you to open links from your presentations (something you can’t do if you show the presentation without the Presenter Tools).
This tip will show you how to take advantage of these helpful tools!
Special Projects Last Week
At the Graduate Hooding on Friday May 14, Thea Maestre gave a wonderful speech that reflects our diversity at HNU. Part of her speech included reading a children’s literature book while extraordinary multicultural illustrations projected on both walls of the VCPA.
Two projectors (mounted on the CatWalk railings) and a MacBook were used to project the images, which were scanned with the Library’s new scanner. As Thea read from the book, she used a clicker that commanded the MacBook (located way up on the CatWalk!) to advance to the next slide. Great job Thea!
